Honey Walnut Shrimp
Honey Walnut Shrimp is a popular Chinese dish. Crispy fried shrimp are coated in a creamy sweet sauce and topped with candied walnuts. This version tastes just as good as the restaurant or take-out version and is cheaper too.
Honey Walnut Shrimp originated in Hong Kong. It is a classic Cantonese dish. Because of its immense popularity, the dish can be found at most Chinese restaurants, no matter what style of Chinese food they serve. The dish will often be made with large shrimp or prawns and is usually one of the dishes served during Chinese banquets.
In the US, the dish became more widely known after being introduced at Panda Express. While the Panda Express version isn’t quite the same as the original, it is pretty similar.
